Nov 20, 2012 3:21 pm
I don't know much about cooling but i was wondering is it possible to have the ducted cooling system and nominate which rooms to cool down? my partner and I will be building a 4bedroom home, it is not necassary to cool every room in the house..
potentionally looking to save on elec. bills and wondering if such a thing exists..

It will cost less as long as the actual unit you buy is designed to be zoned and you buy and efficient unit to begin with.
There is no point putting zones on a unit that is not efficient to begin with or is not designed to be zoned! It will not make a difference!
Evap cannot be zoned - refrigerated can - we have refrigerated powered by 3 phase and zoned for 2 areas of the home - living and sleeping. My inlaws have 4 zones - so it can definitely be done!

We have Actron and you can have as little as 1 zone on or as many as 8 in their ESP range.

As mentioned, evap is all-or-nothing. If you have a refrigerated ducted with only two zones you could just isolate one or two rooms in each zone by turning the vent off in the room and closing the door.
